Do you know about Google Translate? It’s quite useful. As with any computer translator, it won’t be 100% accurate (don’t just type stuff in and think you’ll sound like a fluent speaker with the results); however, it can really help get the idea of the sentence or word.
Babbel has free iPhone/iPod touch/iPad apps for learning several languages as well as using it on traditional computers/laptops. It recommends that you have an account with them, but it’s not required in order to use it. From what I’ve used, it seems pretty cool. Not sure what I think of the name, with the Tower of Babbel and all, since the people who built the tower weren’t the best examples, but I guess that is where different languages originated. Just my little side note. 🙂
Have you used Babbel? Has it helped you with language-learning? What do you think of the name?
I really like this song. And the Lawrence Welk Show 🙂 I’ve always enjoyed their outfits and hairdos.
Cute material, eh? The print really grew on me.
I got this shirt as a hand-me-over and decided to change it a little. I assume it’s from the 1970s or sometime around then because it had one of those long 70s collars and it’s polyester-ish 🙂
Excited to see Tintin when it comes out in the States! It’s based on the Belgian character by Hergé. 🙂
What about you? Have you heard of Tintin?
